This article explains the theoretical suppositions and empirical support of the (older adult) bilingual advantages perspective, reconsiders what is known about language, cognitive control, and aging in general, and advocates a multifactorial perspective on bilingualism that underscores the concept of neuroplasticity over that of plain bi- versus monolingual group comparisons.
